Of inuman time.
Gone are the days when guys would talk about sexist stuff or guy stuff during drinking sessions (maybe due to the fact that guys really don’t talk about anything interesting unlike a girl’s night out wherein they talk about some nitty-gritty stuff that men would love to listen to… or not. The not part pertains to feminine stuff that men wouldn’t want to hear… really)
A typical conversation would be like:
Guy 1: Pero mahal mo ba talaga si ano naman diba?
Guy 2: Oo, parang hango lang yan dun sa favorite Korean movie na napanood ko e. Yung My Sassy Girl.
Guy 3: Ay tsong, luma na yang My Sassy Girl na yan. Marami pang mas malulupet na movies na Korean at pwede mo na ding tanggalin sa listahan ang Windstruck at yung The Classic.
Guy 4: Tama ka dyan. Marami pang ibang maganda. Nandyan yung My Boyfriend is Type B, Too Beautiful To Lie…
Guy 5: May mga nakakaiyak din tulad ng Sad Movie. Tsaka may mga bastos tulad ng Sex is Zero.
Guy 2: Pero ok naman yung My Sassy Girl diba?
Guy 4: Ok sya pero sabi nga namin na marami ka pang mapapanood na magagandang Korean movies. Nakakakilig nga e.
Guy 1: Nakakakilig tulad ng My Big Love at A Very Special Love?
So, I was watching Stephen King’s Desperation the other day and my mom just got back from work. We were going to eat (the television is viewable by the dining area) when she said,
Momma: Wala bang Tagalog dyan?
This movie had subtitles in it. What I did then was…
(Subtitle: I think he needs some help…)
Moi: Sa tingin ko kailangan nya ng tulong…
(Subtitle: But he needs to enter that room!)
Moi: Ngunit kailangan nyang pumasok sa kwartong yan!
Momma: Tado, hindi yang Tagalog na yan. Yung sa channel 2…
(wala lang talaga…)
